Liquid Biopsies: A Promising Method for Detecting and Monitoring Cancer In the future, liquid biopsies could become a crucial part of cancer diagnosis, surveillance, and screening. These tests might replace or complement traditional methods and help in earlier detection of cancer recurrence and the initiation of treatments, resulting in better treatment outcomes.
Research: The living environment, skin microbiome and allergies The human microbiome is the set of microbes living on the skin and mucous membranes, and the genes they contain. There is a constant exchange of information and cooperation between the microbiome and the human immunological defence system. An imbalanced microbiome can predispose a person to the onset of various chronic diseases, such as autoimmune diseases or allergies.
More effective cancer immunotherapy Cancer immunotherapy activates the patient’s own immune defence. The research funded by Instrumentarium Science Foundation studies how treatments can be targeted more effectively.
